From saving lives to building communities, the 46 leaders from across Essex public services who make up the latest cohort of Leading Greater Essex already have a wealth of learning among them.
Setting aside ballot boxes, care plans and myriad calls for their attention, the new group met for the first time on Tuesday 7 May to form a new Leading Greater Essex community (#LGE2019). Exploring their shared experiences they considered how learning can help leadership in complex organisations and further ignited their shared curiosity about how they can think and do differently as part of their #LGE2019 learning journey.
Gavin Jones, Chief Executive of Essex County Council welcomed the new #LGE2019 cohort to the complex world of whole systems leadership, and encouraged them to challenge themselves, their organisations, and the senior leaders they work with, by “holding up a mirror to us all”, as they embark upon a year of learning together.
